ORDERING Cosmokrator and its Books



To order a Cosmokrator model - the first item on the shopping list - click on the Add to Cart button (postage is included in the price).


For help in using your model for the first time and understanding how it works, the Getting Started Guide - the second item on the list - consists of all the material given in the first four menus on the Home Page of the Cosmokrator website. It can be printed off onto A4 paper - from the link on the Home Page or from the list below - and put into a folder to use as a reference booklet. This is free of charge - our introductory gift.


Note that the model assigns one planet to each sign/colour – but you can still use it with the traditional system of the five original planets (other than Sun and Moon) each ruling two signs if you have not yet made the move to Aquarian Age astrology. But read my justification for giving full status to the more recently discovered planets (suggested at in some of Linda Goodman’s work through one of her advisers) in my newsletter for 2011 (link on Home Page).


To get the more out of Cosmokrator in all its dimensions, a mini-library of more detailed books is in process of production (one a year since 2009 – see the order list) each consisting of roughly 100-200 pages of text, and fully illustrated with pictures and diagrams that often speak for themselves. These are scrapbook-style visual quotations, and not always of high quality - the intention is to save the reader the chore of looking up other books when pictures are referred to! Each book lays in foundations for the next, so ideally should be read in sequence.


As you see from the links against titles already available, we have decided to make them readable in full from the website as they come on-stream – but you will not be able to print or save them onto your own system. Thus the price quoted against each book is the cost of a hard copy on good paper and posted to you (inclusive of £5.00 for postage and packing) saving you the specialist printer, paper and colour toner expenses involved - and giving the author a tiny profit for her work.


You can EITHER order books (as with the Cosmokrator model) by clicking on the Add to Cart button and going through the procedure for paying by PayPal, OR send a cheque as pre-payment (payable to Vulcan Assets). Queries and further details? E-mail me at asia@cosmokrator.com


All beautifully codified in the Cosmokrator model, the Titles column of the book list gives the main subject area explained, whilst the next column gives an idea of the key number sequences and colours introduced for the first time. The Spanner or Veil No. in the last column on the right relates to exponential changes in dimension following the division of the Cosmic Octave into an increasing number of divisions (there are seven major quantum leaps, each providing a system, of which the best-known is the 8-note octave). Through the books we will come to realise how each of these consciously survive in many areas of the arts, sciences and games we play today, since the basics of sound division, colour or shape show up in fields such as atomic structure, molecular compounds, animal biology, astronomy, architecture and other arts. These increasingly complex orders of octave are gradually introduced and discussed up to Book 14. You will see what the concept of Veil or Spanner means by reading the books and looking at their pictures – but the overall idea is that Veils obscure what is going on beneath the surface, and we have to unpick them, whilst Spanners put those hidden principles of the Octave (in increasingly smaller subdivisions) to use, to create things or make mini-journeys to the Centre by various media – in practice all very simple and obvious, such as listening to music or looking at cosmic paintings.


The last two books give an overview of the Female and Male dimensions of religion, and are simply anthologies of wonderful material showing up Cosmokrator's key spiritual principle of the complementarity of opposites – Plato’s favourite. Nothing in Cosmokrator conflicts with any of the established religions since it embodies principles common to all Religion - the Religio Perennis. This means that Cosmokrator and all it has to offer embraces lost forms of philosophy and spiritual knowledge. After the World Wars it became clear that conventional sources of spiritual instruction were becoming bankrupt - and this means all the religions – since unfortunately organized religion has mostly abandoned what it used to know about the universal languages of colour, music and geometric harmony that, using ancient and modern sources, Cosmokrator reassembles for you and your children.


Although the Cosmokrator books provide deeper understanding of the model’s potential, they can also be read quite independently of it. Eventually a Bibliography including the many books on colour, music, number, astrology and science that provided its literary sources will appear at the end of the series, but in the meantime relevant titles are referred to in individual books in lists or footnotes.

The Author

Author Asia Shepsut (a pen-name for her Cosmokrator work) wrote her first two books on calendar festivals and on priestesses in the ancient world for HarperCollins. With degrees in Art History and Archaeology, she was a teacher and itinerant presenter of papers in these fields at various academic venues (her c.v. is on the Layish website). Fortunate to have been taught by several well-known experts at London and Oxford University colleges, she has travelled worldwide in pursuit of her research into the Canon of Ancient Near-Eastern Art (in which the ancient Theory of Correspondences plays a key part). The languages of the Cosmokrator model are off-shoots from this main line of enquiry, since she found proof of the practice of Cosmokrator principles in surviving artefacts of the Ancient Near East, developed from c. 4000BC and reaching their peak in Babylon and Greece. This is why, paired with Book 7 on Colour and Astrology, she also inserted into the Cosmokrator book list above an optional volume (Book 7A) which is an academic paper vindicating Cosmokrator’s structure against the cultural background of a master Theory of Correspondences brought to its highest level of complexity by the doctors, diviners and astrologers of Babylon.


It neatly bridges the Cosmokrator Project on one website with the Canon of Ancient Near East Art Project (CANEA) on her Layish website, and even gives Cosmokrator academic respectability for those who want to know the reasons behind its combinations of colour, musical notes and astrology that unfold in the Cosmokrator books. It was submitted to an authority on ancient astronomy in the British Museum and its overall theory presented at an ARAM Conference on Ancient Near Eastern Astronomy and Astrology held at the Oriental Institute Oxford in 2010. The (CANEA) research is being built up chapter by chapter on the Layish website on the overall premise that a core cycle of images in ancient near eastern art express calendrical cycles: like the Cosmokrator book series, it will take some years to complete every section due to the high visual content that has to be managed.


Eventually information about all her written work and photos of other inventions will be posted on the Layish website (the Cosmokrator model in fact relates to a suite of other more specific astrological 3-D geometric sculptures). She cannot claim sole responsibility for the wonders of Cosmokrator, since it is the fruit of hundreds of explorations by others drawn upon by her – but as an experienced teacher she can claim credit for her ability to predigest and present complex knowledge in palatable form (in this case the New Astrology) - using simple language and images - for common educational use. Why do scholars write up their research if not to be read and used by society at large?
